The campus is planned as a green campus and has a Zero-Waste water discharge system with sewage treatment and effluent treatment plants to recycle and reuse water. For power supply, 30% of the demand load will be met through solar panels. All extra-low voltage will be based on IP networking, thus putting in place a Digital Blanket for the entire hospital. The engineering services will be centrally monitored using advanced Building Management Systems

The Ranipet campus was used during the first two waves of the COVID pandemic as a surge facility at the request of the District administration. 

As part of Phase 2, a 350-bed Pediatric Specialty Centre is planned with support from Fairfax Financial Holdings and Quess Corp. There is also a proposal to create a Research and Innovation Block to enhance the institutional research capacity.
